For some people, a traditional language school may not be the best option for learning a language.

This service matches learners with an experienced language teacher in the country of their choice. The result? A personalised learning experience that delivers the fastest possible language progress.

Thanks to our cultural extras, including cooking, music, dance, filmmaking, sustainable development and yoga, among others, you can combine language learning with an authentic cultural experience.
Speaking a foreign language – or several – will advance your professional career in more ways than one. Aside from providing you with an added value that will make your CV stand out to employers, you will maximise your job-seeking possibilities by being able to work in different countries and through different languages.

More and more students are finding in blended learning the perfect approach towards their language learning. The reason is simple: doing an online course is a fantastic way to warm up before your departure so you’re extra prepared for the experience. Likewise, choosing to do an online course after your on-site studies will guarantee you keep up all of your newly-acquired skills!
It’s a fact: there’s no more efficient way to learn a language than using it and being exposed to it in different contexts every day over a length of time. This is precisely what our general courses offer you – the opportunity to receive outstanding language lessons as well as endless opportunities to put your new skills into practice. And that’s how you cement knowledge!
Courses for families
With our language courses for all members of the family, children can have fun with other kids from around the world while parents benefit from an active holiday immersed in a new culture.
Yes, young students tend to be sponge-like and therefore faster language learners. But do you know how to boost this ability? By making the learning process a real ADVENTURE! Dynamic lessons, new international friends and fun activities… the excitement never ends! Will it be an English and surf course? Or a French and horse riding program? Or how about Spanish and dancing? You decide! What’s more, you can also choose to learn more unusual languages such as Japanese or Korean!
Teacher Training courses
Whether you're new to the field of education or an experienced teacher, our Language Teacher Training courses will take your career to the next level! In partnership with accredited teacher training centers in superb international locations, we offer language teacher development courses for both native and non-native speakers.
Get a certificate or diploma through exciting vocational training in specific fields of study like business or health and beauty. Studying in your target language is the perfect way to achieve fluency in different real-life contexts and, at the end of your stay, you’ll have a distinguished diploma as a testament to your hard work!
Courses for 50+
Learn a language together with people from your own generation. By studying in immersion, you’ll quickly develop language skills while experiencing a thrilling cultural exchange. Travelling is all about discovering and connecting with others, and our programs for students over 50 are the perfect combination of a smart vacation and exercising your mind!
Courses for 30+
These courses offer a more mature study environment than a standard adult language course (which is available to anyone aged 30 or over). If you need English mainly for the less formal areas of professional life, as opposed to for a specific professional goal, this course is a great fit.
Course + Work experience
These programmes combine a general language course with an internship, a paid job or a volunteering programme. Putting your language skills to the test in a real-world situation is priceless, and you’ll be amazed at how much your fluency improves as a result!
Private language courses
For some people, a language course in a group may not be the best option for learning a language. We have a solution that offers personalised tuition in a unique setting: immersion language courses in a one-on-one environment. This course type matches learners with an experienced language teacher in the country of their choice. The result? A personalised learning experience that delivers the fastest possible language progress.
